Dear GrimGloomTalers

Time really does fly. It feels like the first contest in this group was not farther in the past as last week, and yet here it is, the 14th competition has just ended. GGT has grown well during those 4 years since I founded it, and it's uplifting to observe how it gathers so many so awesome artists and writers, supporters, and other fantastic people.

The next contest will be one of the two themes I mentioned in this contest's entries journal (the one linked at the beginning of this one). See you in September! But before that happens, there is still the Summer feature of our underappreciated works - expect it soon.

Have a lovely rest of the Summer
STelari

Haworth'Housekeeper?  Who says so?  I could be a governess!'
'Darling,' said Maria, 'calm down.'
'Why are you being Mother?  You are clever!  You have an imagination!  I'm the housekeeper!'
'Elizabeth, curb your vices!'
Charlotte looked disapproving.
'Not worth teaching French and music to?  Fine.  You all be governesses!  Even her!'  She pointed.  'Those people aren't the warm-hearted matrons you'll hope for, young Anne!'
Anne was three and not listening.

They said she was the cleverest one of all, but she died anyway.
'Maria,' Charlotte whispered.  'Are you awake?'
She was not dead yet.  She opened her eyes.
'I am content, Charlotte.  Comfort Elizabeth.'
'Oh,' said Charlotte, 'they are mistaken!  You could not speak so calmly if you were going to die.'
A sob came on Maria's other side.
'Don't fear for me, Emily.  No coward soul is mine.'

PruningEach springtime, over months and years,
I come at you with pruning shears.
I snip the weeds that steal your light,
That grow too wild, that don't look right.
Some flowers were not meant to thrive,
Why keep their feeble hopes alive?
I tear up grass grown tall around,
Too common for such fertile ground.
I cut the drooping heads from you,
Where leaves grow dark, I cut them too.
Then, leaving you in wintry lands,
I lock my shed and wash my hands.
SekhmetNo lion, but a lioness
Were you, their deity of war.
More often god; there, then, goddess,
No lion, but a lioness.
Men may make women powerless,
Yet whose the warlike, godlike roar?
No lion's, but a lioness'.
Were you their deity of war?

January Feature Journal

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 21, 2015, 9:16 PM


This journal of Features was borrowed from my dear friend :iconj-u-d-a-s: because everything in it was so incredibly awesome!!  Enjoy this amazing collection and I'll be back tomorrow to update the "Creative Plans For Angelles LaVeau 2015"  Stay tuned.....


So now its tomorrow and I'm back to share plans for 2015.  I've been carrying my sketchbook everywhere with me, and soon I will have several new "action portraits" to post for you all.  I am also starting a "Divination Deck" that will consist of 56 images and will be made into a deck, along with a hard cover book (written by myself with meanings of the cards).  But be sure... Its NOTHING like the Divination Decks you've seen before.  This turns the page (or cards) totally up-side-down and will hopefully capture an eager audience.  Well that gets me started anyway!! 


All the best,


Angelles

The same as the previous years:
Vibrant colours! Warming sensations! Brightness! Joy!

TheRafflesia, nominated by funkichkn
Amy is a young, friendly deviant with an extraordinarily large and loving heart. Willing to help friends and strangers alike, she spreads hope to other deviants with kind words, prayer, and encouragement. Amy is both generous and sweet in her frequent features of undiscovered artists; it's very clear that she is determined to selflessly support her fellow deviants in every way possible. Even as one who is relatively new to the community, she is definitely a force of love and support, and her art is gorgeous as well! Amy is a photographer, and her pictures seem to emulate the shining of her heart; they truly are splendidly beautiful. Equally lovely is her compassionate and caring demeanor, as she extends advice and a listening ear to any who might need one. I find it especially heartwarming that she takes the time to pray for any who might need it, and, with their permission, shares their need with others; such a circle of active support and care can never be understated. Amy unconditionally makes her fellow deviants feel loved, and they love her in return. Unknowingly, while Amy's Angel Award was in line to be awarded to her she came forward and offered to be a Gangsta of Love. She knew nothing of her Award at that time - bless you Amy!

Joe-Maccer, nominated by Dieffi
The moment you visit Joe’s profile page you can see how much he gives of himself to others. Joe takes pleasure in featuring other artitsts in his bright and attractive journals, and in an instant you can see how he honours his page visitors by answering everyone. Joe truly has a loving heart that cares deeply about other deviants, their art and their well-being. His journals reach an incredibly wide audience, yet he takes the time to reply to every comment with his wonderful personal touches to each and every one. Joe also shows his appreciation and considerate nature by commenting supportively on the things he faves. Joe’s own amazing digital and abstract art also attracts a large audience, which is very well deserved. And yet again he answers every comment, using people’s names and acknowledging them personally. I have never seen anyone, anywhere, as kind, polite, giving, caring, generous and and supportive as Joe-Maccer.

PurpleInk777, nominated by Nameda
Tracey is that adorable soul who opens up her heart widely to everybody she encounters! This place would definitely not be the same if she wasn't around! Her warmth fills everybody's hearts from the moment we encounter her, and the beauty of her soul transpires in each of her interactions! One minute in her profile is enough to fall in love with her! She works really hard to help promote artists, projects and other causes! And it's the sweetness with which she answers every comment and note that makes us feel really lucky to have her friendship! She’s cheerful to those who need it, always encouraging to fellow deviants, and a joy to be around, making people feel her presence and friendship through the distance, and for that we love her so much!

:iconanoya:
Anoya, nominated by MayEbony
Nancy is a Community Volunteer in the APN (Animals, Plants & Nature) section of dA, but she is also so much more. Always kind-hearted and totally selfless, Nancy goes out of her way to help anyone who crosses her path. She replies kindly when she can't accept a nomination for a DD, but often features the nominations in her own stunning journals and enjoys giving the artists exposure anyway. She also cares that the artists see they were nominated, because of the joy they will feel through that honour. Nancy makes time in her busy schedule to answer all of the messages that come to her, and even if you ask about a topic she doesn't know, she will find out who you should ask. Her photography is truly beautiful and she is so kind with her comments to others both in her journals and on her deviations. Her life motto appears to be 'I want to help others'. She is definitely living that, supporting it with a great deal of love, and spreading joy far and wide.
